Coach Russ Brazil is proud to have returning 3rd place State girls' Barrett Ebright, and top girls' District-ranked runner Jessica Kneeshaw returning this year.
Caty Stein, sophomore, is a State veteran, and Heather Wilson, sophomore, is first-year but should be competitive. The Pirates really need at least one more girl to run consistenly to fill out the five-runner minimum needed for team points..
On the boys' side, returning junior Owen Farcy placed 6th at State last year. Senior Nels Lindgren returns and should place near the top; Andrew Alexander, sophomore, Stephen Harvey, senior, Ian Pinter, junior, and sophomores Evan Malczyk and Ryan Berry are joined by French exchange student Lionel DeLou and freshman Jordan Laughlin.
